Akagera Game Lodge
Akagera Game Lodge is currently the only accommodation option within Akagera National Park. More of a hotel than a traditional safari lodge, it has fantastic views over Lake Ihema, with a large swimming pool perched on the edge of the savannah. However, plans to upgrade and expand were been put on hold due to the recession, and the site is dotted with unfinished buildings. At present, fewer than half the 64 rooms are in use, although we understand that work is expected to recommence in 2012.
Our view of Akagera Game Lodge
Although Akagera Game Lodge has a good location from which to explore Akagera National Park, and the service was friendly, it felt a little like a building site when we last visited in 2011. The hotel certainly has potential, but it currently has the feel of a place that has passed its prime and is in need of an upgrade.
